Destin High School Mission

The mission of Destin High School is to prepare students academically, physically, and mentally to become responsible, productive, empowered citizens. Embracing the area’s history as a tourist destination, military hub, and “world’s luckiest fishing village” and supported by strong public/private partnerships, our diverse and specialized programs will provide the foundation each student needs to secure a solid future.

We are committed to implementing a comprehensive framework for 21st century education that focuses on the skills, knowledge, and expertise students must master to succeed in work and life. Critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity will be embedded within the context of core subjects and interdisciplinary themes that will challenge our students, teachers, and school leaders to excel. A place-based approach to learning will take advantage of the local geography and community to create authentic, meaningful and engaging personalized learning for students

Destin High School (DHS) strives to meet the diverse needs of our local community by providing specialized programs and career academies in areas such as:

  • Marine Science
  • Environmental Science
  • Cybersecurity
  • Hospitality and Tourism
  • Construction (e.g., Carpentry; Electrical; HVAC; Masonry; Plumbing; Construction Technology)

Applied learning opportunities will engage our students in place-based real-world problems and solutions, instilling in DHS students a profound understanding of their roles and responsibilities as citizens and leaders in their communities, both locally and globally.
